Debate

Matt and I have a healthy debate going.  He thinks (at times) that our blog is a wasted site.  Cute for the few people that read it, but useless none-the-less.  I keep telling him that there are lots of people that read our blog that we don't even know about.  So, to help me WIN the debate, if you read our blog, please comment with your name, like so.

Ex: Rachael Neal

I'll be interested to see who actually reads this - and of course, to prove my husband WRONG!

Stacy Pauls. By I finally put something on mine, which I created A LONG time ago, because yours inspired me!I only put a couple pics on it but it is something for now. MATT YOU ARE WAY WRONG!!!!

Kara Veihl, faithful blogging friend of Pam's.
I LOVE how you put that pic of Annelise at the top of your blog page!!!

I read it and I think Eric does too. So I think you'll win, but I have another argument for you. Why does it matter if only a few people read it? That doesn't make it wasted. It's worth it for just those few people who are close with you. Plus, I think lots of Grace people like to keep up with your lives. You would probably be much less conected down here without your blog.

Another thought- just put Google Analytics on your blog. It's free and you can keep track of exactly how many visits, unique visitors, keywords people use to find you, areas of the country people are in, etc. I don't use mine much, but I do check it about once a week to make sure people haven't found it using creepy keywords. Plus I know exactly how many visits it gets daily.

Michelle Leineweber, I like to see how the baby grows.

Pam said...

I read it every day! So not wasted. I feel more connected to you guys than I have in years.

Christina Johnson said...

Christina Johnson.. I read your blog. Although we did not know each other that well at MBI, it's still fun to know what's going on in another MBI alumni family! Keep the blog!

Tracy Jurgens. Even though we don't get the chance to see each other very much or even talk on the phone, I still enjoy reading the blog, because it keeps me the loop as to changes and things going on in your life. Sorry, Matt...I think you lost this one! =)

Phil Luter said...

OK, so I don't read it all the time. But when I am in the mood I go from link to link and catch up on what is happening with friends and family. Probably wouldn't have much communication with you otherwise. Don't stop.

Brad and Janelle said...

I read it, but I have to force myself to limit my blog-hopping to 2-3 times a week. It's great to keep up in Cyberspace.

Jenny LaBo said...

Hey Matt & Rachel,
I read your blog all the time but have never commented on it. I love watching the baby grow and feel like I know her (even though we haven't met yet) Lora had me check it for her when the baby was born and I occassionaly even copy pictures for her. So I enjoy knowing whats going on in your life.
